Don’t shun Independence celebrations Sikazwe  tells opposition

Headlines Don't shun Independence celebrations Sikazwe  tells opposition

 Patriotic Front (PF) Member of Parliament (MP) for Mpulungu, Freedom Sikazwe, has urged opposition political parties not to shun tomorrow’s Independence Day cerebrations.

Sikazwe said tomorrow’s celebrations should not be politicised as it is the national birthday and not one political party’s birthday.

He said there is need for every patriotic Zambian to come together and cerebrate the peace that the forefathers fought.

He added that Zambia is a Christian Nation with people that fear and honour God as their creator and personal saviour that want peace to be their daily meal.

Mr Sikazwe added that it will not benefit those that will choose to shun away from the Independence Day as it will reflect that they do not appreciate what the forefathers struggled for when Zambia was colonised.

He appealed to members of the public not to listen to political leaders who may discourage  them  taking  part in the independence celebrations.

  1. Please Freedom, go and celebrate. You became independent after looting the entire treasury of the country, leaving the Zambian masses suffering. And now after drying up the coffers, you have taken a further step by increasing the fuel pump price so you can tear further the already torn pockets of the poor ordinary Zambians. Very soon you shall also increase the price for the Agriculture inputs and electricity tarrifs. What is there to celebrate about in Zambia ? You as an individual, you are getting everything for free and it’ s the poor ordinary Zambians who are paying for the sins you committed with Edgar Lungu, by looting the coffers of the country, imwe bakabolala. Ili cipuba sana.

  2. Leave the opposition to make that decision. The UPND feels aggrieved by having its election victory stolen by Lungu. How do you celebrate freely and happily with dishonest characters.

  3. Honestly ba Sikazwe. How does one from UNDP celebrate celebrate independence when over 2000 of their members are languishing in prisons after the disputed elections and the leaders are not being allowed to freely visit them in prisons? When ZNBC as a national broadcaster is just for PF! When those preaching hate speeches against certain regions of the country are the news makers and speak loudest…… One can go on and on why increasingly under PF the meaning of national independence celebrations in diversity is meaningless

  4. sikazwe has forgotten how pf caders undressed a female upnd member during youth day celebrations in front of inonge just last year. What kind of memory do these pf caders have, just keep dancing to dununa.

  5. WHAT SPECIAL MARKS DO YOU SEE IN ZAMBIA CELEBRATING INDEPENDENCE WHEN WE SEE ALL ALONG IS EXPLOITATION OF MAN BY MAN? HOW MANY ZAMBIANS ARE IN PRISON TODAY WHEN THEY SPEAK FOR TRUTH? ZNBC ARE BEING INTIMIDATED NOT TO SAY THE TRUTH AND SHUN OPPOSITION PARTY VOICES, POOR PEASANT FARMER NOT GIVEN THEIR MONEY SOLD TO FRA. CAN A WELL REASONING PEASANT FARMER CELEBRATE TRULY WHEN HE OR SHE IS STARVING? FUEL PRICES GONE TO CLOSE TO 40% INCREMENT. GOD HELP US. SIKAZWE’S REASONING LUCK MERIT.

  6. Please let them stay away, because it will be consistent with their current behaviour and refusal to recognise the President. Independence Day is for Zambians that accepted 1964 as the independence of Zambia. The opposition, UPND, do not recognise that year and are still waiting for their regions to be liberated.

  7. We fought for freedom and independence.

    Now we have a clueless incompetent dictator in State house because of a rigged and stolen election who is only interested in stealing more public money to add to the 230 million he has already stolen.

    And us poor Zambians and our children, and our children’s children, will have to pay this money back to the IMF and for his jamesoni parties in New York. What benefit has Zambia had from Lungu? He promised petrol at K5.50 a litre, and now it is more the K13. We are paying for his thieving!

    So what is there to celebrate? Poverty? Dictatorship? Where is the freedom when radio stations are closed down? And ZNBC just talks PF propaganda? Is this the freedom we fought for?

  8. Like respect, celebration should not be forced on people. When the Chipolopolo score, we all celebrate because we all agree and feel its worth it. So far we have proven to the world that we are incapable of ruling ourselves in Zambia. People are jailed endlessly, businesses are closed because of political reasons, our government is full of cadres who know nothing about the jobs they are tasked to carry out. Our education and health care systems are all in name only. As Zambians, we have a lot of work to do.

  9. Who is the opposition please leave them out we need a progressive nation these people do not care about Zambia. Every country has problems and for your information even with our problems we will remain who we are every thing has time Rome was not built in a day. Sorry we don’t need HH he is too bitter, arrogant, greedy,selfish, pompous,tribalistic and not President material. Pamenso paliticamisha never smiling yaba shame

  10. Sikazwe is a complacent backward racist, what does any progressive Zambian have to celebrate with him? Azaleta one party state nafuti and we’ll go back to the 1980s where everything is blamed on “South African spies”. The name Freedom is a mockery of your nation and you must be quiet

  11. Comment:This government is a disgrace to this country.they are shallow minded people whose a gender is to deprive the innocent poor Zambian people.God help us
